The North Georgia Church Planting Network

Parakaleo Ministry

The NorthGeorgia Church Planting Network supports the ongoing work and mission of Parakaleo Ministry. Parakaleo creates relational space for wives of church planters to engage in a robust gospel that frees them to embrace and to live their truest identity.  They are committed to reaching and serving women who volunteer their hearts and lives to serve their communities and churches. By training, supporting and encouraging women in ministry, they desire to create a virtuous cycle of health, joy, community and education. These women replicate their training by teaching others and pouring these truths back into their home church. 

The church planter's spouse plays a critical leadership role in the new church as well as in support of the planter, yet frequently goes unnoticed and may have little training or support.
